> Impact Hub Ottawa

Ottawa's home for social innovators

IMPACT HUB OTTAWA is a collaborative coworking space and community that inspires, connects and enables action for a more just and sustainable world. Part of a global network of over 100 Impact Hubs and 16,000 members, Impact Hub represents one of the world’s largest networks focused on building entre-preneurial communities for impact at scale.

Since its launch in 2012, Impact Hub Ottawa has established a community of more than 350 local members and supported over 150 early-stage social enterprises to launch and grow. Impact cannot happen in isolation, it requires collective action. With this in mind, the uniquely hosted workplace environment is designed to foster collaboration.

With a focus on supporting purpose-driven organizations to do good better, Impact Hub Ottawa members include a diverse range of entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, artists, activists, investors and funders that range in size, stage and scale. Members have access to coworking, drop-in consulting services, weekly member programs and events, as well as special perks and discounts with local businesses. As a result of these offerings, 88% of Impact Hub Ottawa members say that the programs and training opportunities they access support them in gaining new knowledge and skills. Additionally, 95% of members cite Impact Hub as instrumental in expanding their networks across disciplines and sectors.

A local highlight of this impact-driven community is the launch of the region’s first Social Impact Awards in partnership with the City of Ottawa, bringing visibility and awareness to the social enterprise sector. In 2017, the Impact Hub global network adopted the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a lens through which to view their collective impact on the world and to foster and extend efforts to tackle the SDGs through entrepren-eurial and innovative solutions.

In the past year alone, the network has created over 200 programs and incubated over 1800 ventures across the globe. As an acknowledgement of their work as a driver of community engagement, the Impact Hub global network has been endorsed by the United Nations Office in Geneva.
